Spring Break in Minnesota!
Catrinas Cerveza & Mexican Grill
Are you tired of snow covered roads and slow commutes? Are you ready for warmer weather and more sunshine? Then we’ve got the program for you – Come warm up and feel the vacation vibes at Catrinas Cerveza & Mexican Grill, a successful local hot spot that just opened their 3rd location in under four years.
Catrinas Cerveza & Mexican Grill prides themselves on bringing authentic Mexican flavors and dishes from Mexico to Minnesota. With over 40 Years combined kitchen experience, Founders Lorenzo Tejeda (right) and Paul Marshall (left) know how to create an outstanding restaurant while staying true to themselves by focusing on bringing you everything fresh, authentic, and locally sourced. Catrinas opened their first restaurant in Oakdale, MN in late 2014 and their second location in St. Anthony in 2016. Their 3rd location recently opened in July 2018. All food is made in house by the owners and chefs on a daily basis and served in a fast-casual taqueria setting. They have received not one, but two awards for Best Tacos in Minnesota, so come check them out for yourselves so you too can enjoy the best tacos in Minnesota!
During our event, Lorenzo and Paul will share their backgrounds and the story of turning Catrinas from an idea into a reality. They will also treat us to an authentic Mexican food experience by involving all of our senses to help us identify traditional flavors of Mexican cuisine that will make us feel like we are on vacation.
Choice of traditional Mexican entrée (Tacos, Burrito, Catrina Bowl, or Taco Salad). All entrées will be made to order with your choice of meat, rice, beans, veggies, toppings and salsa. Chips, Salsa and Guacamole will be served family style at the tables before and during dinner. Water and refreshing Jamaica Water (Hibiscus tea) and Horchata (a sweet drink) will also be available during the event.
*The menu of options will be included in the email confirmation for you to fill out and print ahead of time to bring with you and will also be available during the event to edit/make your final selections before dinner.
